Re: I am returning my Bible...

When did the begging letter go in there? My guess is that he is referring to 'The Charge.' These cases are disturbing to all and even more so if the victims are known to you and one's response will be governed accordingly. I would not presume how to tell anyone else how to react. However, in an adm...

Re: Husband & Dobbie - VERDICTS

At the moment I just cannot think beyond empathising with how alone that poor child who cried for help to the Chaplain and was betrayed must have felt.

A truly awful betrayal of trust all round and I hope the punishments reflect that.

Re: Underachieving at CH

The minute my mother knew that I was going to CH she was on the phone to everyone she knew telling them the good news. It was the chance of a lifetime. Especially in 1952. To make matters worse my sponsor was an old boy of the school and a senior governor. The weight of expectation was on my should...

Re: The trial of James Andrew Husband and Gary Dobbie

Does anyone know why the press have not referred to Dobbie as the Chaplain, just as ‘teacher’ or ‘housemaster’? One of the complainants reported her abuse by JAH to ‘the Chaplain’ but it was never taken any further. Why haven’t they made the link? Good to see you back CJ! Hope all is well with you ...

Re: Politics

I find it very hard to believe that Ali deleted his own posts, especially as he was warned several times and then all his posts were deleted. Looks like censorship to me. I said it was my belief. I am not here often enough to be 100% sure. However the scenario I THINK could have happened is that th...

Re: Politics

Banker Brown suggests that the Forum has deleted part of his post, and maybe it is this that is causing him to rage in impotent fury. I'm interested to know how all this works since I also missed the original posts by aliburns and the first I knew of them was that there was a long sequence saying "...

Re: Hello! I'm back! Is there anybody here?

' Spoony' is a relic from the seventies, maybe even late sixties, who posts under the pseudonym Spoonbill. He does have a tendency to be a little mischievous from time to time hence the reference to Barnes Wallis bouncing bombs. However when in serious (ish) mode he is capable of descriptive writing...

Re: Hello! I'm back! Is there anybody here?

Welcome back Ruthie! Yes the forum is a lot quieter than the days when oldies like me struggled to keep up with the prolific posting of you, Great Plum and others back in the day. There is still a small but regular hardcore here though and, as Rockfreak said, the forum comes to life from time to tim...

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

I cannot find any reason for deletion or editing of the above . BUT...... please think twice before typing. There could still be the chance of an appeal after sentencing is handed down. One good thing about 'Operation Yew Tree' and the BBC scand a ls is that it has persuaded people to speak out at ...

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

I remember going along to a House Baths session when I was 14 and being struck down by a nasty bout of cramp in one of my legs while I was swimming, so I hauled myself out onto the side of the pool. The master who was supervising the session saw that I had cramp, so he hunkered down at the poolside...

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

As the father of 3 daughters I have one observation.

How come, in a co-educational environment, a male teacher was apparently allowed to massage or even mix with naked or semi naked female pupils without a female (teacher, matron) being present?
